reinforced Reagan's view that the
summit was a working session, by
announcing that Nancy Reagan
would remain behind in
Washington, despite plans by
Gorbachev's wife to go to Iceland.
Until Raisa Gorbachev's plans
were revealed on Icelandic
television, the United States had no
inlking that she would accompany
her husband to the hastily-called
superpower summit, White House
spokesman Larry Speakes said.
The Icelandic government
confirmed that it was notified on
Sunday of Mrs. Gorbachev's plans,
and that she would be the guest of

Mrs. Gorbachev is coming," said
White House spokesman Larry

that this meeting was to be brief, a

It was to be a straightforward

Buchholtz, Youth Campaign
Coordinator for the Apley
campaign, said Apley has received a
"very positive" response among
students. She said she worked for
her local senator over the summer
and saw how the Legislature
worked. She met Apley and found
that she supported "all of his stands
on issues." That, coupled with her
dislike for Pollack, led her to join
the Apley campaign.
Buchholtz said she thinks Apley
has a good chance of defeating
Pollack because /'she can't

people don't like her." But, she

Cancer greater among poor
Poor people run higher risks of getting cancer and dying from it,
according to an American Cancer Society report and a new study.
Among the reasons are cigarette smoking and a tendency for cancers
to be caught at later, less curable stages among the poor, scientists said.
Research had previously found disparities between blacks and whites
on the frequency and deadlines of cancers, but a re-analysis shows that
much of that effect really comes from differences in socioeconomic
status, said Dr. Harold Freeman, chairman of the committee that
produced the report.
"You can clearly show that poor peopledevelop cancer more and die
more from cancer simply because they 're poor. It means you have to
reassess how you're confronting the problem as a nation and as a cancer
society,"said Freeman, director of the surgery department at Harlem
Hospital Center in New York.
In terms of getting particualr cancers, he said, poor people show
higher rates of cancer of the lung, cervix, and esophagus.
DeLorean fraud trial begins
The federal racketeering trial of John De Lorean began yesterday with
the task of selecting 12 jurors to determine if the former automaker
defrauded investors of $8.9 million. - .
A grand jurylast year accused De Loren of diverting the money
from the research arm of his De Lorean Motor Co., which built
stainless-steel sports cars in Northern Ireland, and using it to repay
loans, buy jewelry and be used for other personal purposes.
"This isn't exactly the homecoming I was expecting," the former
General Motors Corp. executive said as he entered the federal courthouse
in downtown Detroit.
Referring to his 1984 trial and acquittal in Los Angeles on cocaine
distribution charges, De Lorean said, "They framed me in L.A., and
they're doing the same thing here."
De Lorean Motor, a Michigan corporation founded in 1975, fell into
financial difficulty shortly after production began in 1981, and filed for
bankruptcy the next year.
Businesses ignore technology,
AT&T chairman warns
The technology for the Dick Tracy two-way TV wristwatch may not
exist yet, but other electronic marvels are within the grasp of U.S
business and are simply being ignored, AT&T's chairman said
American Telephone and Telegraph Co. Chairman James Olson
warned that the failure of U.S. business to jump on technological
developments is hampering its ability to maintain a strong
manufacturing base and compete in the world market.
"I don't think the answer is building walls around the United States.
I don't think protectionism is the long-term solution to our problem,'
Olson said. "We have to make sure the rest of the world opens up
their markets like the U.S. market is open."
Even when American business has taken advantage of advanced
information technologies, it hasn't established standards that let various
systems communicate with each other, Olson said.
